It is easier to spread the flu than previously thought, according to a new University of Maryland-led study.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have identified and isolated a gene that is directly involved in the way strawberry plants grow, spread and produce fruit. 
Researchers have developed a wake-up receiver that turns on a small, electronic device in response to incoming ultrasonic signals – signals outside the range that humans can hear.
University of Washington engineers have turned tissue paper – similar to toilet tissue – into a new kind of wearable sensor that can detect a pulse, a blink of an eye and other human movement.

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has developed NanoMap, a system that allows drones to consistently fly 20 miles per hour through dense environments such as forests and warehouses.
A drug-carrying microsphere within a cell-bearing microcapsule could be the key to transplanting insulin-secreting pig pancreas cells into human patients whose own cells have been destroyed by type I diabetes.
Between 1982 and 2015, 9 million to 45 million people were affected annually by water quality issues, according to a recent study led by the University of California, Irvine.
